Blackberry-Thyme Margaritas are the kind of drink people will remember you for.

You host a summer party, grill all kinds of healthy vegetables and fresh fish, and hand each guest one of these.

They’ll feel like they’re at a professionally catered event or at least a swanky cocktail bar, thanks to the herbs, fresh fruit, and slight sparkle.

Just make sure you really like them before serving, because people are going to ask you to shake these up over and over again in the future.

Margarita mixes are notoriously awful for your health, filled with sugar and artificial flavors and colors. Plus, they result in mediocre-tasting, less-than-picturesque drinks. We class up the cocktail by making it from scratch and then adding in healthy, antioxidant-rich ingredients like blackberries and herbs.
